EUDORA WELTY, GODDESS


Just a line from a letter written by Eudora Welty in 1942, I had to share, as I read, enthralled, late into the night....

"I was born with the feeling that if time and hurry were forgotten, something quiet and wonderful would happen in their place."

Seems so soothing. And your 'Easter Egg' rocks are timeless.

Profoundly true. I love her books - you've inspired me to re-read a few.

Beautiful quote. Something I'm trying to do everyday.

Shelter Cove rocks and a very good reminder quote. Forever things. Thank you!

I so enjoy these very valuable standard-bearing quotes. They can't really work, but they serve to establish an extreme to reflect upon. A favorite of mine which represents the polar opposite is this:
"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed ... every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle ... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
Thankfully, a balance lies somewhere in the middle. But we can imagine ...

After a hectic adult life, I search out and savor opportunities to forget time and hurry, and when that happens, something quiet and wonderful most definitely does happen. Now to find a way to live in the world at times, as well as in sanctuary, without being overcome by time and hurry again. A challenge for many lifetimes...

It is never too late to slow down, quiet down, or get more at peace with that inner voice inside. Start now. :)

Way off topic, please forgive me Eudora, but I just want to check in to see how the gals on the 'slowlovelife' blog feel about the President's comment about the good-looks of Kamala Harris?

Even my most favorite and totally adorable Obama fan-gal had some issues with it:

“I’m sure he meant to pay her a compliment … but quite frankly, it just divides women and it just divides people up to separate them by looks and probably was a little ham-fisted,” said host Mika Brzezinski. “I think he made a mistake.”


Critical, but measured. Mika is a Williams grad, by the way, Dominique. Hate her or love her? I know it could go either way.

Here's what I think. He was just having fun and I loved the comment - but I also think that if a Republican had said the same thing he would have been completely lambasted by women's groups and probably even be asked by some to resign from office.

Darlene said...

Obama's comment probably made Kamala Harris feel uncomfortable. That's why it was inappropriate and not just having fun. He did owe her an apology.

William said...

First, I haven't heard a peep from her unless I missed it, probably because she is a normal human being and can actually have some fun. Second, and most important, I am disappointed that he APOLOGIZED for NOTHING - it was nothing other than a good, fun spirited, comment. This country is going apology crazy - good god can't people just have some fun!!! Just for the record, I apologize for anything in this comment that seems inappropriate or insensitive or sexist.

Darlene said...

William, he probably apologized to her or the fallout, like the fact that you and I are even discussing it.

William said...

Darlene, of course he publicly apologized for it because some people are going ape-shit over his comment - because that is the 'sensitive, inappropriate, sexist, name-calling' apology culture we live in. When, the truth is, they are friends and they are having a great time laughing about it together on the phone tonight and frankly, it was pretty damn funny.

Darlene said...

William, I haven't seen the video, so I really don't know the context of the comment. If what you say is true, he only apologized to appease his detractors, then I agree with you, he didn't need to apologized.

We knew Miss Welty. She was a friend of both my husband's family and mine. I hailed from that same slow culture that I long for these days with all my heart.

You are so lucky....you have those memories forever.

Me too. I just ordered the collected stories. My old copy is living in storage.

William, you are fishing in a pond full of wide-mouthed bass, and I (for once) am not going to take the bait. Even though you yourself are totally adorable. Or something.

William said...

WHAT??? Are you suggesting that I was trying to bait someone??? I would never ever ever ever do that!!!

By the way, I'm certain that you meant "totally adorable" as a compliment, but I want to remind you that I am so much more than just adorable and I am sick and tired of being defined just by my adorableness! Women are so shallow that way!

The wonder of great writers is that, from time to time, they create diamonds with their words. I grew up visiting a place in northern New York with no heat, electricity or running water. Forty acres in the Adirondack woods where good conversation and lots of laughter were our entertainment. (I miss those days so very much.)
